Spacecraft Manoeuvring in the Vicinity of a Near-Circular Orbit

This book sets forth the theory of optimal manoeuvring in the vicinity of a circular orbit, describing the possible types of optimal solutions for the transfer and rendezvous problems in cases of coplanar and non-coplanar orbits. In order to find the manoeuvre parameters of these solutions, the book presents extremely simple analytical and numerical-analytical methods, and shows how they can be applied for the solution of basic manoeuvre problems for real spacecraft. It also details effective methods, used both in Russia and across the globe, for the active space object manoeuvre assessment, which will help to propagate collision hazards more accurately.

Andrey Baranov graduated from the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology in 1974 and joined the Keldysh Institute of Applied Mathematics of the Academy of Sciences of the Soviet Union in the same year. As a specialist in the field of spaceflight dynamics, he was involved in the manoeuvre calculation for about 140 real spacecraft. He is currently working on practical manoeuvring issues for single spacecraft and spacecraft within constellations, and on the issues of space debris collision avoidance. He holds a PhD in Physics and Mathematics and a DSc, and is an academician of the International Academy of Astronautics and a Professor at RUDN University, Russia. He is the author of more than 100 articles and three books, and has three patents to his credit.
